Steve Caplin tells Ed Bowsher about Google's new online gaming service: Google Stadia. If successful, the service may kill the gaming console. Steve also discusses Tesla's disastrous launch of its new pick-up truck.
Steve Caplin looks at the efficacy of Waitrose's coffee logs. There's also the problems Uber's self-driving cars have with jaywalkers, blood donors tracking their blood, Tim Berners-Lee's new browser, magnetising blood cells to cure disease, stretchable electronics, rhino horns made with horse hair to deter poachers, cream to help you learn languages or musical instruments and the world's brightest (multi-coloured) headlights.

Steve Caplin laments the arrival of AI job interviewers at Unilever, while an Estonian company is using AI for workers after a pay rise. You could get £100,000 to be the face of a series of humanoid robots, get a camera drone to direct part of your movie, play an app game in real-world streets, trim your hedges and garden with a new device, get an ebike with facial recognition unlocking or order the tallest and widest business jet ever.
Steve Caplin hails the arrival of driverless cars on the streets of London, narrower, windier, busier and wetter than the US.

Steve Caplin explains why Giphy is now the world's #2 search engine. He looks at a revolutionary new process for creating smartphone lenses, being identified by our ears, Piaggio's courier robot (with problems the Daleks are all too familiar with), the UK's first moon rover, luggage that you can ride, plants taking selfies and why farmers wanting to protect their cattle might soon be painting them with black stripes.

Steve Caplin looks at the new service to choose your own flavour of KitKat - for a price. He has news of how fast our thumbs are getting, of earbuds to help you get the most out of the sound at a concert, of the new warnings on e-scooters, of a clever new suitcase that charges your phone as you wheel it, of why high rooftops are being bought up in London and why workers in the UK are sabotaging robots.
